Silica is a visual rendering tool that converts quartz compositions to QuickTime movies. Users specify the length and format of the output movie and Silica does the rest. Silica is a must-have utility for visual media designers who need interoperability beyond Quartz Composer.

See a short overview video:

Key Features Include:

• Custom Conversions
Change a composition’s input parameters without the need to re-edit in Quartz Composer.

• Export Presets
Create new movies in a variety of formats for a range of devices and playback situations.

• Dynamic Exports
Export movies with a length from a few seconds up to 24 hours.

• 32-bit & 64-bit
Works equally well with plug-ins built using either 64-bit or (legacy) 32-bit mode.

• Background Export
New movies are created in the background, enabling you to continue working without waiting.

• Sharing
Share your output movies directly to Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter and other popular internet services.
